Formal PDS Agreements
Ensuring Commitment to the Partnership
Formal agreements are negotiated and signed by district superintendents and their board of education president of the PDS districts and charter schools every three years. The WCE dean, university chancellor, provost and board of trustees president also sign this agreement in a celebratory ceremony.
These agreements reaffirm the importance of the partnership goals and the responsibilities inherent in them. While reflecting the importance of flexibility in meeting the needs of individual partners, the agreements also ensure that the program goals are not compromised and that continuity and equity in partnerships remain foremost in the PDS vision.
